SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — California announced a new call center Monday which offers free non-emergency emotional support and referrals to anyone in the state.
The peer-run “warm line” officially opened Monday. The toll-free line is staffed for most of the day, seven days a week. Residents can contact the line via telephone or instant messaging.
You can call at 1-855-845-7415. The center hopes to be staffed 24/7 by the end of the year, but for now, it will be staffed:
Mondays to Fridays: 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Saturdays: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sundays: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The service is an expansion of the city-funded San Francisco Peer-Run Warm Line, which opened in 2014.
They expect approximately 25,000 calls a year.
